Gov. Bush wants probe of Schiavo collapse

Friday, June 17, 2005 Posted: 12:19 PM EDT (1619 GMT)


TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) -- Gov. Jeb Bush asked a prosecutor Friday to investigate why Terri Schiavo collapsed 15 years ago, calling into question how long it took her husband to call 911 after he found her.

In a letter faxed to Pinellas-Pasco County State Attorney Bernie McCabe, Bush said Michael Schiavo testified in a 1992 medical malpractice trial that he found his wife collapsed at 5 a.m., and he said in a 2003 television interview that he found her about 4:30 a.m. He called 911 at 5:40 a.m.

"Between 40 and 70 minutes elapsed before the call was made, and I am aware of no explanation for the delay," Bush wrote. "In light of this new information, I urge you to take a fresh look at this case without any preconceptions as to the outcome."

Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Friday from The Associated Press. In comments in The Miami Herald, he said Terri Schiavo would not have survived if her husband had not immediately called 911.

"It's absolutely preposterous," Felos said. "If he had waited 70 minutes she would have been dead."

Terri Schiavo died March 31 from dehydration after her feeding tube was disconnected at her husband's request, despite unsuccessful efforts by her parents, Bush and others to keep her alive.

An autopsy released Wednesday concluded that she had been in a persistent vegetative state and revealed no evidence that she was strangled or otherwise abused before she collapsed.

It left unanswered the question of why Terri Schiavo's heart stopped, cutting oxygen off from her brain. The autopsy showed she suffered irreversible brain damage and her brain had shrunk to half the normal size for her age.




That man is a disgrace to this country and the not-so-great state of Florida(and to think I live there).I wish he'd show that much concern for the thousands of kids in foster care .

"New information"?!?!?! Testimony from a 1992 trial?

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Well, at least we know he isn't running for President.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Well, he will have to put Terry on the top shelf soon as it's hurricane season.
Last year we heard him during all the hurricanes... then we had to hear him do the same speel in Spanish.
Anyone remember his wife (Columba Bush) getting busted by customs for all the sh*t she bought on a trip to Paris and didn't claim it. 19,000.00 in jewelry and clothes... Opps I forgot to claim it... just an oversight.

Yup. Exactly. Problem is considering that Florida is the most backward state in the union, this could backfire. I'm sure people have said this before in 2000 but there will not be another Bush in the White House.

what do you mean by most backward. Florida is one of the richest states. By the way there is nothing wrong with having a probe.

This is yet another documented reason why the US economy is the f**king toilet. These Bushes can't run a damn business, let alone a state or country. Bushes need to know when to let shit go.
YOU LOST FOOL! NOW GET ON WITH RUNNING THE DAMN STATE!! SHIT!
